I am a 57 year old women determined to make my life better.

I have had many health issues, but I have not given up. When life deals me a blow, I pick myself up and dust myself off and find ways to make things better.

I believe life is what you make out of what you are given and striving to make it all it can be.

Up till the past 2 years I went on about 3-5 camping trips a year with my husband and at least one of those was with all our family. I am not able to do it at this time, but hope to be able to do it again . Possibly this summer!

I love nature, and all that nature has to offer. Like the saying goes, "Stop and Smell the Roses, before life passes. you by." And I plan on smelling all of them.

Added 9/62009: My health issues continue to plague me, so many goals were not met but I did get to go camping a couple of days!!! And yes I still DARE TO DREAM. I will get better and I will meet other goals!
